    Can the Frontier overhang the vehicle's seat?

    I can't find the answer in the manual & just want to make sure it's ok. It's overhanging by a couple of inches. Part of the recline foot is hanging off (in harness mode).

    To the best of my knowledge it can have overhang. The only one I know of that cannot have overhang is the Graco Nautilus.

    As long as 80% of the base is on the seat, you're fine.
